When you dig around in the dirt, grow and harvest your own food, it kind of gets into your bones and you start thinkin’ about deep stuff. Stuff like “all dirt is is a bunch of poop and dead stuff.” Am I right? And that’s where we get our nutrients, from the dirt (poop and dead stuff). We just keep consuming one another, excreting what we can’t use and eventually we die and rot back into the dirt. Then something else grows out of us. According to this line if thinking as far as I can tell there’s not much difference between plants and animals. Its kind of like we’re just recycled versions of one another. I like that. It makes me feel so cozy here on my little farm with the garden, the weeds, the poop and the chickens.
